‘Rama is a big problem for us’, says Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt


Johannesburg – Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt may have to do without Ramahlwe Mphahlele for the club’s preliminary round, second-leg clash with PWD Bamenda on Friday.

The 30-year-old former Mamelodi Sundowns defender was withdrawn at half-time of the first-leg 1-0 victory with a hamstring injury.

Hunt said: “We won’t train with any intensity before the next game on Friday, that’s for sure. We’ll do recovery and just a little bit of work on who, how and what [needs to be done].

“[We’ll see] who’s available because it looks like we’ve got a few problems already with one or two players. I just hope it doesn’t affect our game [against Black Leopards] fort he following week, which is a bigger concern at this point in time.

“Rama is a big problem for us, he did his harmstring or whatever he’s got.

“He [Mphahlele] has a hamstring strain and will be further assessed on Tuesday and Wednesday to ascertain the extent of the injury and his availability for the second leg.”
